Effect of exposure-age on chromosomal rearrangements in methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas exposed survivors

Exposure age and chromosome aberrations

Methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas disaster appeared one of the world’s worst industrial disasters by claiming a huge toll of human lives instantly and as its aftermath effect. Besides respiratory, ophthalmic and psychological disorders, stress leukogram, including anemia,

LMO1 regulates a novel oncogenic pathway druggable for neuroblastoma

LMO1 regulates a novel oncogenic pathway druggable for neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma (NB) is derived from neural crest cells and its main developing sites are adrenal gland and sympathetic ganglions. It is the most common extracranial solid tumor in childhood, accounting for more than 7% of malignancies in

Concerns over dosing oral anticoagulants in clinical practice

over dosing oral anticoagulants in clinical practice

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a heart condition characterized by an abnormal rhythm leading to irregular beat. An important consequence of AF is an incomplete emptying of the atria (upper heart chamber) leading to blood stasis and, potentially,

IL-2/IL-3 interplay mediates growth of CD25(+) acute myeloid leukemia cells

acute myeloid leukemia cells

A variety of cytokines regulate the survival, growth, differentiation and apoptosis of leukemia cells. Accordingly, aberrant or excessive expression of their receptors may be associated with the biological activity of leukemia cells, and hence with the outcome

Detecting math ability with brain potentials

Detecting math ability with brain potentials

It is known that the various individuals differ in their ability to perform arithmetic calculations. Some people can find mathematics an extremely easy exercise while for others it can become an insurmountable problem. For example, a significant

International Conference and Exhibition on Pharmaceutics & Novel Drug Delivery Systems. Osaka, Japan. September 09-10, 2019

Cientific Group is overpowered to declare its absolute first “International Conference and Exhibition on Pharmaceutics and Novel Drug Delivery Systems”. Pharma Conferences hung on September 09-10, 2019 at Osaka, Japan. Pharmaceutica – 2019 gives a general stage

Our biological clock controls mitochondrial activity in a tissue-dependent manner

The molecular circadian clock and tissue-specific clocks

Mitochondria are the cell organelles that are responsible for the largest part of cellular energy production. Within these organelles both the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle) and oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) are taking place. In these cycles ATP,

Coastal wetland plant responses to elevated carbon dioxide

saltmarsh, coastal wetlands, nitrogen uptake, carbon dioxide

Coastal wetlands are some of the most efficient habitats globally when it comes to assimilating carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it in soil. This is mainly due to the fact that many coastal wetland plant

The immunomodulatory enzyme IDO: Expression in the uterus of mares?

Detection of IDO protein in the equine endometrium by immunohistochemistry

IDO modulates immune responses. The enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO) degrades tryptophan. This amino acid is required for immune defences against pathogens, but also stimulates pathogen growth. Its degradation inhibits effector lymphocytes and retards pathogen proliferation. Thus,

Fine needle aspiration cytology for neck masses in childhood. An important tool in pediatrics

Mucin-secreting vacuolated cells, intermediate cells, and squamous cells

Neck masses can be incidental or the reason for significant concern for parents and physicians. The technique of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology (FNAC) may be crucial in such settings. In 1981, the first FNA biopsy performed in

Cellular stress and AMPK activators including metformin and the anesthetic drug propofol promote restoration of human consciousness

Cellular stress and AMPK activators including Metformin

The neural mechanisms that give rise to human consciousness have been described as one of the greatest and most profound mysteries in all of modern medicine. The use of general anesthetics to induce loss of consciousness (LOC)

Keeping a clean house to suppress HER2+ breast tumor growth

Keeping a clean house to suppress HER2+ breast tumor growth

Autophagy (self-eating) is a process used by normal cells to keep a “clean house”. It degrades abnormal or damaged proteins and organelles, helps to fight infections and also provides energy during periods of fasting or exercise. Besides

The nature of bel-1 attC stabilizes its genetic environment and contributes to antibiotic resistance spreading

Schematic representation of integrons containing the blaBEL-1 gene

The rapid emergence of antibiotic resistance is a worldwide crisis, endangering the efficacy of antibiotic treatment. Multidrug resistance in Gram negatives is now recognized as an issue of worldwide interest. Those bacteria possess various resistance mechanisms compromising

Fiber refractometry revisited

Response of three sensors across three different RI Zones.

The refractive index (RI) n of a substance is generally defined as the ratio of the speed of an electromagnetic wave in vacuum c to its velocity in that substance v, or n = c/v. Refractive index

Magnetic NPs for automatic speciation analysis

Arsenic is a ubiquitous element in the environment originated from natural sources as well as human activities. This element has been identified as a public health problem because it has serious toxic effects even at low exposure

European Forum on Dentistry and Dental Materials

LONGDOM proffers our immense pleasure and honor in extending you a warm invitation to attend “European Forum on Dentistry and Dental Materials” to be held during September 04-05, 2019 in Paris, France. Dental MAT 2019 is focusing

Sliding esophagoplasty. Can esophagectomy be avoided in esophageal obstruction due to huge thoracic aortic aneurysm?

Thoracic aortic aneurysm is a serious vascular disease which usually requires surgical aortic graft replacement. In recent years, endovascular stent placement proved a mini-invasive alternative to be used safely in properly selected instances particularly in subjects considered

Biologically active chemicals in yellow-cedar protect tree tissues and possibly human health

Nootkatone, a biologically active oxygenated sesquiterpene in yellow-cedar heartwood

Yellow-cedar trees, also known as Callitropsis nootkatensis, can live for hundreds of years because they have has few insect or pathogen pests. Periodic studies over the last century have examined extractable chemicals in their tissues and discovered
